Camden Fort Meagher

Lest we forget
Camden Fort Meagher is internationally recognised as being “One of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world”. For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defence of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales. 65% of the fort is located underground in a labyrinth of tunnels and chambers. The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world. Camden Fort Meagher is in the Ancient East and just 20 minutes from the Wild Atlantic Way. It is largely run by local volunteers but can cater for corporate events, weddings, and school tours.

Open Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 12 noon-5pm,  June until Mid September. Last Entry is strictly 45 minutes before closing time. Private tours are available for groups of 12 or more by calling us on 085 850 1483 or  bookings@camdenfortmeagher.ie
